Yeah pressies

Don't you just love it when you get parcels in the post, even if you know what's in it. Today I received a parcel from Amanda over at Amanda Makes. She'd told me yesterday that she'd put my PIF in the post, gosh it was like my birthday two days on the trot.
All wrapped in gold tissue and red velvet ribbon (sorry photo has rotated itself?)

And look whats inside

 One of Amanda gorgeous mermaids which is now sat on a shelf in my craft room where I can gaze at it for inspiration. Also a lovely piece of fabric with little carousel horses on it, I think it's linen and I absolutely love it (Amanda must have remembered my love of horses) I now have to decide what to make from it as it'll have to be something very special.

Anyway have had abit of a cutting session

now all I have to do is sew them together.
Oh and another little project, yesterday I was browsing the charity shops whilst Daisy was being pampered and I came across a really pretty red crochet top, it's redder than in the pics

Love all the detail and I'm sure I could make it into a lovely cushion so I'll add it to the TO DO list.

Have a lovely weekend everyone

Hi Pene! Glad you liked them! Will you show us what you make from the fabric? That red crochet is a great find! I'm always on the look out for red things to make into cushion backs, but rarely find one. Lots of love and have a great weekend! Amanda xxx
